Various BSOD's in Windows 8 occurring seemingly at random

Q: Various BSOD's in Windows 8 occurring seemingly at random

Hi all,

New to the forums, first post as I had looked through other threads to try and fix a problem I have been having, and it looks like a lot of people here are quite knowledgeable on these issues.

System is as follows:
ASUS M4A87TD/USB3
AMD Phenom II X4 B55 3.6GHz
4 x 2GB Geil DDR3 1600 PC12800 CL9
MSI HD7950 Twin Frozr Video Card
Sandisk Extreme 240GB SSD (System Drive)
Corsair HX750 PSU
Corsair H100 CPU Cooler

Nothing is overclocked anymore.

I am on my 5th fresh install of Windows 8 Pro WMC build 9200 64bit.
On every install I have been experiencing the same problems and instability.

Never had any dramas on previous windows 7 installs.

The computer seemingly runs fine for a period of time, usually 2 or 3 days, then all of a sudden I am plagued with BSOD's with varying messages. Page fault in non page file area ntfs.sys seems to be the most regular however.

I have removed all other HDD's from the system to see if that fixed the problem, but I still had BSOD's.
I have updated the firmware on my system drive (Sandisk Extreme 240GB SSD running on SATA port 1)

My motherboard (Asus M4A87TD/USB3) bios has been updated to the latest revision.

I have installed the AMD videocard driver instead of running the version included with Windows to see if that helps.

I have disabled all startup services that were not microsoft and done the same for programs running at startup.

I have run all the system updates in windows update.

I have run a Seagate HDD diagnostic tool on my HDD and all checked fine on all tests.
I have run Sandisk toolbox to check my SSD and it checks fine.
Checkdisk on all drives detects no issues.
Memtest says that my memory is fine as does windows memory diagnostic.

I have disabled automatic updates.

I have disabled automatic system maintenance as this was freezing my computer to the point that I couldn't do anything in windows aside from open the start menu. It wouldn't even let task manager open when running.

None of these methods I have tried have solved the issue.

Hopefully someone here may be able to help and know what the problem is?

Regards

Preferred Solution: Various BSOD's in Windows 8 occurring seemingly at random

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Various BSOD's in Windows 8 occurring seemingly at random

Make sure Windows is up-to-date. Do not disable Windows Update. Leave it enabled.
Check for new updates and install them.

Run system file checker. Full tutorial here: SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8

Also, run chkdsk to check and repair the NTFS File system.
Tutorial here: CHKDSK - Check a Drive for Errors in Windows 8

Tip
Run chkdsk via command prompt, follow option 2 in the tutorial.

Is Windows 7 . . .
- x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? 64-bit
- the original installed OS on the system? No - Homebuilt computer
- an OEM or full retail version? Full Retail

- What is the age of system (hardware)? roughly 3 years - different components are different ages
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) approximately 8 months

I haven't recently changed any hardware, so I'm not sure where to start - I ran the memory test overnight and found no errors, I ran a video card stress test for about an hour with no issues, my HD's both sound fine (I know that's not the only symptom, but just to put that out there).

I did have two of these memory sticks running in dual channel, but when I initially installed Win7 it would hang at the install screen and it ended up being because of one of the sticks of memory (which is why I'm only running one 2GB stick now), so that was my first thought - but it ran fine for months on this stick, and the memory test ran fine so I'm steering away from this.

I get this error very frequently, and almost always on the first boot of the session (if I wait a couple hours I boot it and it freezes at boot and then loads fine the second time).

I'm at college so I don't have another computer I can pull parts from (or the Win7 disc), so I was hoping that somewhere hidden in these files it might give a hint as to what is wrong... Please let me know if I left something out that will help!

My OS is Windows 7 Professional x64

These seem to happen erratically, at apparently random times, regardless of how heavily my system resources are being used. I've gone weeks without any errors, and I've faced several errors on the same day, even under the same computer usage patterns. I haven't been able to attribute these BSODs to any specific task; some happened while browsing the web, others while gaming, others still while leaving the machine idle. I'm inclined to believe that these errors are caused by hardware, since I've faced similar problems before reformatting my machine.

Majority of these BSODs are IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, code 0x0000000a, but I've had other error codes under similarly random circumstances.

Attached is the folder of all diagnostic files grabbed via SF Diagnostic Tool.

Thank you in advance.

The only thing I can recommend at the moment is to test your RAM, but longer term I'll recommend installing a genuine Windows 7 -- an HP OEM installation on a retail motherboard is counterfeit. BSOD's on these sorts of installations are very difficult to diagnose and many BSOD analysts won't attempt them.

The most recent was a IRQL_not_less_than_or_equal_to, but over time there have been SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTIONS, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED and a few others.

This is a Toshiba laptop with 32 GB of memory, a toshiba 256GB SSD and two crucial m500 960 GB SSD. I have updated the Crucials to version M05 of the firmware (latest) some time ago and the crashes are continuing.

Crashed appear to happen randomly, I can be just trying away and I get a BSOD or the machine can be idling overnight and when I get up it has restarted. When it crashed it does not always restart (sometimes hangs at 100%).

This has been going on for a while and I have been busy, so I have just lived with it, but if someone could help me work out how to fix it I would appreciate it.

I would also appreciate a pointer to how to learn how to do this for myself. It is frustrating to be so helpless.

Thanks

A:Multiple, seemingly random BSOD on Windows 8.1 Pro

How did you manage to cram 3 SSD's into a laptop computer?
Are any of them connected using USB?

D: drive only has about 6% free space. Windows likes 15% free space in order to perform stuff "behind the scenes" without adversely affecting the system's performance. Please free up 15% on ALL hard drives (you can get away with 10% on larger drives and won't notice a large performance penalty)

Out of the last 14 memory dumps there were 6 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.
- missing Windows Updates
- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers), older systems, or even pirated systems
- low-level driver problems
- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from Initial Hardware Diagnostics or Hardware Diagnostics ).

You can get a head start on the hardware diagnostics if you'd like - they are located here: Hardware Diagnostics

I have an Intel NUC with an internal SSD which I use as a HTPC. It's been relatively stable, but if it was left alone and went into sleep mode it would sometimes wake up with a BSOD, but this would never happen if I shutdown the computer properly after I was done with it. Over the last week that all seemed to change. I hadn't performed any updates or hardware changes, but I'm suddenly getting BSOD's all of the time. Sometimes it's while watching videos, sometimes it's while I'm trying to run Windows Update, sometimes it happens when no programs are open on the computer. I ran the "Who Crashed" program but it didn't specify any specific drivers as being the culprit. Can anyone here make any sense of my crash files?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Sometimes I can run for up to around 6 hours without any of these happening, but when it does happen there are sure to be more to follow. Computer restarts offer a temporary fix. Audio always continues to play uninterrupted throughout any of these (Excluding BSOD, of course.)

Ranked in order of frequency (Most common at top):
-Random screen freeze (Usually while browsing the internet, never seems to happen in games.) When it unfreezes my cursor takes the shape of what it should when I hover over something, but it won't change back (Ex. Changes to the I symbol when it goes over the address bar, but keeps the shape no matter where I put the cursor.)
-Screen goes black and the "DVI NO SIGNAL" message appears on the screen, computer sounds to be running normally. It usually returns to normal after a few minutes, when I have the patience to wait. This happened once while I was away from the computer, so it wasn't triggered by an action of mine.
-Screen goes completely black, no messages, and it restarts. OR I get a BSOD. I was thinking that maybe the black screen is actually a BSOD that fails to show me the actual blue screen. They both create dump files.

In addition to these things, the Windows Update "Windows 7 Service Pack 1 for x64-based Systems (KB976932)" Has been failing to install since about 2 months before the crashing started. The error code is 80073712. All other updates install successfully, I was considering the possibility that these two proble... Read more

Hi there. I've been having some BSOD issues for over a month now, and I have yet to find a solution. Partly because I'm not 100% sure what the root of the problem is in the first place. So far since the issue started, this computer has been completely restored twice, and it had also been in the hands of a licensed HP technician for a while a couple weeks ago. The guy told me that he ran stress tests, and all sorts of things, but couldn't find any issues.

The BSOD's have been occurring very randomly though since the first time it happened. One night I was away from my computer, and when I got back to it, I noticed it rebooting. And then it told me it recovered from a Blue Screen error. That was the first time I got it on this computer. Since then it's happened off and on. The times it happens most often (not the ONLY time, though) is when I play a game called 'Minecraft', which I also may add is a java-based game. Sometimes I can have the game running for hours with no trouble. And other times I'm lucky to even get 5 minutes out of it before the computer BSOD's.

I know for a fact my Java is completely up to date. And this computer was purchased in December 2010, so it's pretty much brand new. It's an HP, and is currently running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. I take good care of my stuff, so I don't think it's from me doing anything stupid. I have a feeling it's just something silly I'm not noticing, or a hardware fault that has so far been flying under the radar.

I've been plagued by odd problems since making this custom build about a month ago, but the latest is the increasing frequency of BSODs. They never occur at load (gaming with high end specs), but often occur at shutdown (forcing a restart before I can then actually shut down). I normally boot into windows in 8-10 seconds (SSD) but the latest post-BSOD boot took about five minutes from typing my password into the login screen to where my desktop popped up. A subsequent reboot was at normal speed. The memory dumps always include the NT OS kernel, but then also some other driver (different each time), which I suspect just happens to be the one trying to run at the time of the error.

Things I've tested:
Temperatures (didn't really suspect them in the first place, but I'm running cool)
Memory (Both the native Windows test and memtest found no issues)
Hard drives (chkdsk came back clean)

All drivers are up to date, although the uploaded report might show an older version of my sound card driver, as I just reinstalled it at the behest of windows action center (which didn't make the notification go away, mind).

I'm hoping someone wiser than I can make sense of this, because it all seems so random to me. Thanks in advance to whoever that is.

Hello all,

I've recently started to experience a BSOD problem I cannot quite put my finger on. It does not save a log, even though I have it set to save in /Minidump.

I have not changed or added any hardware, or software. I completely wiped Windows and started over from scratch, using the most up to date drivers. However they're still occurring, I've restored my BIOS settings to all default settings. I am thinking it was a Hard drive issues, I've ran CHKDSK all both drives - I know my Windows drive was clean, I was not around to see the completion of of my slave drive - I was running CHKDSK via Safemode and came back to a BSOD.


I've attached a administrator Eventlog, but am unable to make much sense of it.

The last BSOD I saw read this;


Code:
KERNEL_DATA_INAPGE_ERROR

*
*

STOP: 0X0000007A (0XFFFFFF6FC4000099C0, 0XFFFFFFFFC000000E, 0X00000001E7588860, 0XFFFFF88001338890)

NTFS.SYS - Address FFFFF88001338890 base at FFFFF880012450000, Datestamp 4ce792f9
I've ran Memory test already, no errors where found. The next step I am going to try is too unplug my Slave drive and see what happens without it. I've already re-seated both drives and memory sticks.

Any help and suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

EDIT: Attached diagnostic tool zip.

I've started to get BSOD when loading TouchBios, an application included with my Gigabyte mother board. These crashes have saved in /Minidump, unlike the others. I'm not sure if they're related in anyway.

Hello there. I'm trying to help out my parents with their PC, and it seems to have been going through a series of BSODs. I've ran several tests to see what might actually activate the BSOD, but it happens when doing different things. Most notably, when I tried creating an account for this forum, I would open the start menu, and right-click on "Computer" to see the specs, but as soon as I tried, the machine instantly BSOD'd me. After rebooting, I tried to replicate the problem, but I was able to see the specs.

They are running Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1 on a HP Pavilion P6000. It's OEM and about 2-years since purchase date. Their current AV is Trend Micro Titanium 2012. Crashes also occur during web browsing, windows explorer browsing, and sometimes when the computer is just sitting idly as nothing is open.

Hi anorexicwallet.

As the issue started to occur after you changed RAM, it would better that you test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

This is a custom-built desktop system. I built it at the end of September and it has been running fine with no problems up until this month. Since the beginning of the month, it has BSODed 4 times: Dec. 2nd, Dec. 6th, Dec. 19th, and today (Dec. 22nd). Each time, using "BlueScreenView" it shows that the driver causing it was "ntoskrnl.exe" and the error code was: 0x0000003b (For the BSOD that happened today, Windows did not capture a minidump for some reason, so I can only speculate that it was the same error...)

There is no real consistency in what causes it. The screen will just randomly "mess up" with kaleidoscopic distortion, any sound playing will stutter, and then the system crashes to a BSOD. I have installed no new hardware since I built the computer. The last two programs I installed before this began were Skyrim (Nov. 28th) and CDBurnerXP (Nov. 26th). It's hard for me to see how either of these could be the culprit, since it has never BSODed while they were running.

My only "guess" as to what might cause it is a partitioning issue. When I first installed Win7, it took up the whole disk (1 TB) with one partition. Later, I created separate OS and DATA partitions. However, the Windows disk management utility did not allow me to create the OS partition of the size I wanted, it limited me to something like 400 GB. I used GParted on an Unbuntu live USB to make the partitions I desired (250 GB OS and 750 GB DATA). I think this ... Read more

Driver Verifier returned something interesting.

When I next restarted, Windows ran startup recovery and asked me to restore to a restore point. After that, it started normally. For some reason, this BSOD also did not create a minidump.

Hi, I have an old laptop which has been suffering from sporadic BSODs for about a year. Sometimes it would BSOD after a few minutes of being logged in - before I had even opened any programs (except those that launched at startup). I reset the computer to factory settings on the 26-27/7/11, and reinstalled only a few programs (of which I have a list if required). Computer details below.
OS - Vista SP2
x86
original OS - Vista
OS is OEM I believe (Vista home premium if it helps)
The hardware is about 4 years old
CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T7250 @2.00GHz 2.00GHz (don't know how much of that you need either)
Video Card - NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS
Power Supply - Dell 65W 19.5V 3.34A

The standard BSOD files are attached. The last two BSODs occurred whilst I was running Driver Verifier.
If anyone can shed any light on my problem (apart from "If this was a human being, I'd shoot it in the face") I'd be very grateful.
Thanks in advance.

Pardon the delay in response.

We're most likely seeing the result of a driver playing foul. Before we go further, we'll need you to turn on Driver Verifier and permit your system to crash some more. Hopefully you'll end up seeing new crash error codes that have VERIFIER or something similar in the name. If that's the case, then DV managed to catch the culprit.

If you end up having it crash at startup, it means a driver that's loaded at Windows startup is causing the problem. You can get things running again by going into Safe Mode and deactivating DV from there. Send any crashes our way.

Hello lads, saw the quality of tech support here so went ahead and got an account to post.

I recently upgraded my PC from Windows 7 32 Bit, to 64 and added 2x4GB stick of RAM and a new graphics card, a GTX560TI. Now since then, some weird things have been happening to my PC, for one, my mouse cursor doesn't show up in one game, another is when something is installing the left and right mouse buttons cease to work and finally, the driver software (Razer Synapse 2.0) for my mouse installs but I can't actually open it, just invisible and when I right click the icon it crashes.

Most importantly, my PC BSoDs at random, or so I thought. After noticing a bunch of my errors were mouse related I went searching using the diagnostic tool if it was the cause of my crashes and what I found out was a piece of software or a drive called: ntoskrnl.exe seems to be the only file listed as the problem.

I then started to get worried that maybe my GFX card was messed up, or the two different types of RAM were not working together as now I have 4 sticks of RAM, 2x2GB sticks and 2x4GB sticks of two different types.
EDIT: Just to add, forgot about it, Chrome seems to hang up or the java application or any embedded videos crash and don't work and it has started to hang my whole system, even when I clicked edit on this post it caused chrome to hang as well as my whole PC for a few seconds.

I keep my system running 24/7 in a room with little dust and average temperatures of about 60F. I use it for general forum surfing, high end gaming, and for CAD software. I don't seem to have any other problems but every few days, whether the system is idle or I am running the processor at 100%, the computer will crash and send me to the BSOD. I have attached the dump files as instructed. (http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html) I would appreciate any tips on how to troubleshoot or hopefully fix this problem. Many thanks in advance for any help.

Two days in a row after upgrading from 8.1 to 10, I've gotten a NETIO.SYS SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION BSOD. According to BlueScreenView, it was caused by driver rdpbus.sys. I've never had this issue in a year of using my laptop with 8.1. WLAN is enabled but not connected. I've been using only Ethernet.

Hey all, I've got problems with reoccuring BSOD's so I hoped I could find some help here as I don't know what to do anymore.
I'll try to make this post as detailed and clear as possible.
The problem:
I've started getting BSOD's at seemingly random times and I do not know what's causing this.
BSOD's usually occur when I'm gaming but that could be a coincidence as I pretty much only game when my PC is on.
Most BSOD's happened while playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive but after tweaking some game settings it has no longer occured.
I've had a BSOD happen right when I clicked restart now as I wanted to fix a problem with Arma 2 (DayZ).
What I've tried:
Uninstalled Hola, this was (one of?) the first BSOD's and I didn't need Hola anymore so I just removed it, sadly enough BSOD's kept coming.
Used Driver Verifier which leaded to the multiple bluescreens (always pointing to HIDclass.sys) of which only 2 got a dump, at 26/07/2013.
Using DV made me go into a constant loop of BSOD'ing at "Starting Windows" until I disabled DV in Safe Mode.
Ran Memtest86+ 4.20, 3 passes, no errors.
Ran chkdsk /f on both my HDD and SSD, no errors.
Useful(?) information:
The day the first BSOD happened (19/7) I did not install anything but my Adobe Flash Player updated to 11.8.800.94
The next 4 BSOD's all occured on 22/7, all of them happened while playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in less than 15 minutes of gametime.
I have since tried a lot of things as I thought the problem was... Read more

I've recently (3 weeks ago) upgraded my PC and performed a fresh install of Win7 Home Premium x64 SP1.
The last week or so I seem to have started getting BSODs pointing at wininit.exe.

I've attached the minidumps and other data in the zip attachment. I've included two mini dumps, one was yesterday when I had avast antivirus installed. I have now replaced with Microsoft Security Essentials as I read avast could cause issues. It was to no avail, still BSODs.

Any help or pointers of things to try would be greatly appreciated.

We've been seeing a lot of issues with SSD's and Intel mobo/chipsets. I suggest that you get the latest firmware updates for your SSD from the SSD manufacturer's website - and that you must have the absolute latest RST (Rapid Storage Technology) drivers from the Intel Download Center (FYI - RST is the new name for the Matrix Storage Manager): http://downloadcenter.intel.com
I also suggest the latest chipset drivers from the Intel Download Center.


In this case your MSINFO32 report states that this device isn't installed:

It's a part of your motherboard's chipset drivers - so please update them ASAP (from the Intel Download Center). FYI - your chipset is listed as the P67 Express chipset.

Temporarily remove ZoneAlarm - that'll tell you if it's causing the BSOD's. Use the Windows Firewall for testing. If you must have finer control, try this free utility: Windows7FirewallControl : Sphinx Software

Uninstall MSI Afterburner - it has known issues with some Win7 systems.

For the equipment that you have installed, a 650 watt PSU probably won't be able to handle full demand for power from the system. I'd suggest a minimum of 1000 watts for this system (4 hard drives, high end video, 8 gB of RAM, etc). To test, disconnect all but the SSD to see if it... Read more

Hello,

My Laptop has been crashing at what seems to be random times for a few months now. Most of the time I will return to my laptop, which was sitting idle, to find that it has crashed, and restarted. It has crashed while gaming, watching movies, photo editing, or just sitting idle. Sometimes I get a BSOD, other times it just goes black and restarts.

System came with Windows 7 from Dell, but I have done a full reformat of the hard drive and reinstalled via the Dell provided system restore DVD after getting a nasty virus 6 months ago. The system is about 1.5 years old, with no known issues other than the random crashes.

After reading other posts, I noticed that Daemon Tools, and Avast seemed to pop up quite a bit as problem programs. I just removed both of these programs, but I am not sure if that is the root of the problem. Thanks for you time.

Hi guys was wondering if you could help. I seem to be getting random BSODs. I can't track it to one particular event. Most recent crashes have been while downloading Elder Scrolls Online, Installing software and streaming a video clip.
At first I thought it might be due to an ethernet port drive issue but I have since uninstalled that driver and the BSODs persist.
I've been able to play games with no problems so any help would be much appreciated.

Hello,
I have been experiencing several BSOD's while doing pretty much anything on my computer.
The last few errors were:
PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (win32k.sys)
SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (dxgmms1.sys)
SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (win32k.sys)

There were more, but I can't remember the name of the errors. The most common one is the SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, and almost all involve win32k.sys.

In all the searching I've done the only case that seems to be similar to mine was a problem with AMD drivers around a year ago, it was patched by MS, and I'm using an Nvidia card. It's likely driver related, but I've reinstalled the Nvidia drivers several times and there has been no change.

Hi -

I believe the problem is likely your SSD.

I only ran the 11 dumps going back to 26 November 2012.


Code:
FAILURE_BUCKET_ID: X64_0x7a_c000009d_nt!_??_::FNODOBFM::_string_+50040
0x7a (0xc000009d,,,) = kernel code from the page file could not be read into memory;

Exception code 0xc000009d = device not connected = indicates defective or loose cabling, termination, or that the controller does not see the hard disk


Code:
FAILURE_BUCKET_ID: X64_0xF4_IOERR_IMAGE_csrss.exe

0xf4 = process critical to Windows suddenly terminated - caused by I/O error

Other bugchecks included 0x1a = memory management error

Also, 0xc0000005 exceptions noted = memory access violation

RAM is of course a possibility, but the SSD seems more likely to be the issue.

This driver was named in another dump & should be updated -

Code:
AsrAppCharger.sys Fri Jun 11 02:37:12 2010 (4C11D998)
http://www.sysnative.com/drivers/dri...AppCharger.sys

The dumps that name Microsoft networking related OS drivers like netio.sys are likely being cause by Norton's firewall.

Hey,

So I bought my Lenovo Ideapad Y580 back in December 2012. It was fine for the first month but around mid
January I started to get these random BSODs, they would happen when I played Civilization V, and also on start-up right before the Windows loading screen would appear.

I initially thought the new Nvidia 310.90 drivers were the cause, but after rolling them back, I still got the BSODs, again at startup. I have re-installed windows through Lenovo's one key recovery and I still receive the BSOD's, the most recent one occurred on February 1, 2013 at around 3:30 while I was watching YouTube videos on.

I'm not too sure what it is and I would very much like to know; I'm beginning to think it is a hardware issue.

Hi Guys, I've recently upgraded my computer in the past half year or so, new cpu, motherboard, RAM, PSU. I just got a new hard drive about a month ago.

The dump files point to hardware problems. The second dmp gives a stop error code of 124.

The first dmp has an error code of D1

This dmp points to RTL85n64.sys as the cause. This is a Realtek 8180/8185 Wireless Device driver. This driver may or may not be the actual cause. It could be affected by something else.

Hi guys

I have put together a system for a friend that has been having random BSOD events since it was setup 4 weeks ago.

During initial install of Win7 it came up with some error saying that a file was missing, restarted the install and installed fine.

Running Win7 64bit.

Any help would be great thanks

Hello all thank you for reading.

My pc is a custom make done for me by a company called, Altex. Two of the drives in it are from the previous machine. I got the pc in August of 2013 and pretty much had issues from the start. At least once during a seven day period while the pc was sitting idle it would freeze.

No BSOD, no error messages just a frozen screen and keyboard. This was a nonstop issue till late December, then while checking out the flight bay for Star Citizen, I noticed the machines fans making quite a good amount of noise. After getting out of the demo my pc began a new and wonderous behavior. Freezing every few hours.

At that time I tried just about everything I could think of, system restore did nothing. I un-installed recently installed programs, I installed new video drivers. I finally got the idea to do selective startup using msconfig, making sure to allow start up of programs I knew I would need, IE: Trillian, Steam and a few others, then see what the machine would do. Crashing problems went away.. so I went back into msconfig and made one slight change, I added all of the drivers and programs for my video card to startup, this included the Catalyst Control Center and like magic... the pc started freezing again. So I uninstalled all that tripe and manually installed the video drivers. No more frequent freezes, I return msconfig to normal startup and I'm back on the once a week schedule of freezes for my pc.

Fast forward to two weeks ago, my pc was onc... Read more

Been getting BSODs a lot lately, whether I am at web pages or just at the desktop, etc. and in my reliability monitor I have video hardware errors. Wondering if my video card is the issue.

I have Windows 7 x64 (downloaded from school website for free) on a system that's only a couple months old.

The 5 most recent are related to sptd.sys. You need to remove that before we can get to the underlying cause (probably scsiport.sys)

Please remove any CD visualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%.

They use a driver, found in your dmp, called sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs.

Use this SPTD uninstaller DuplexSecure - Downloads DuplexSecure - FAQ

when you're done you can use this Freeware:

MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM
(MagicDisc)

in its place

Hello, I've been dealing with with BSOD for sometime now(came out of nowhere). I now know that my earlier BSOD were most likely caused because of my GPU drivers so I've done a clean install of the current driver version but I'm still getting BSOD at random.

I started having BSOD issues with this PC some months back, when I was using an ATI card that was a bit behind the times. I thought it was a faulty graphics card causing it, so I swapped it out with a spare I had and that seemed to fix the issue - no more BSOD boot loops. I recently (just before Christmas) changed that out to a new nVidia 970GTX, but before too long I ran into a few blue screen errors. These would only happen at random. Four so far since the new card - two while browsing the web, one right after quitting Counterstrike Global Offensive (while clicking something in Chrome) and one not log after I got the Win7 login prompt after the BSOD mentioned just prior.

Attached are the files generated by the DM Log tool. A quick perusal shows several old DMP files. I had many many issues with the old ATI card that (seemingly) started it all.

Another point of data: Last night, my mouse suddenly stop responding, and Windows put out the "hardware disconnected" sound. As I got down to check it out, I moved it to another port, but the whole system was locked up by the time I could test it. Took a bit for it to come back online after a reboot, as well. Not sure if that's something, or just a fluke.

I have updated the video card's drivers, but that didn't help.

Hope you guys can help; I'm a decent enough troubleshooter, but I've never been very good at piecing together dmp files - hopefully I'll learn something.

Thanks!

M.
